Critique - Stakes Classes - Judge: Gemma Gisby

I would like to thank the Committee for inviting me to judge the special class awards I thoroughly enjoyed my day and was spoilt for choice with the dogs that were there, and my thanks to all the exhibits who entered.

Irish Setter Special award Special Yearling

1st Cohen’s Aoibheanne’s Rough Diamond With Shushana JW seemed to be giving handler a hard time, racy elegant dog yet still masculine, raised brows, good amount of chiselling throughout. Nicely arched neck flowing into well laid shoulders, straight front, deep chest and good spring of rib. Dark gleaming coat in great condition, still has a lot of maturing to do but just right at this age.

2nd Hill-Decoster’s Never Say Never Again such a sweetie, pretty headed bitch lovely raised brows nice finish to foreface, straight front, strong arched neck leading into great layback of shoulders, good topline, well sprung ribs and good depth of chest. Moved well.

3rd Tupper & Anthony’s Staratlanta Elliot

Irish Setter Special Award Jim Shankland Memorial Open

Was a close choice between my first two loved them both and could change places on a different day, and would love to own both.

1st Hill-Decoster’s Vicary’s Keykeeper what can I say about this dog I just loved him has the most handsome of heads, with such a lovely expression has a dark eye and has a spark of mischief which I love! He is very well made, he flowed from tip of nose to the tip of his tail. His size and shape is so appealing, beautifully balanced giving a truly elegant outline and has substance and good muscle. Very good reach of neck into well laid shoulders, lovely deep chest with excellent spring of ribs, firm topline leading into an excellent tailset which he used well on the move.

2nd Kobach’s Copper’s Wine’N Roses (ImpSwe) I loved this bitch, she has such a gorgeous feminine head with melting expression. Correct construction all through with good angulation front and rear, deep chest gentle sloping topline and correct tailset. She moves so happily with her owner it is lovely to watch never stopped wagging her tail, and moved effortlessly.
